Wolverine Gridders Consider
Entering Pro Ranks Next Year

Football Ends Vie For Cage Berths

By HERM EPSTEIN
For the first time since Harry New-
man started to play for dollars in-
stead of letters, Michigan seems
likely to have at least one representa-
tive in the professional football ranks
next fall.
While most of the seniors on this
year's varsity disclaim any intention
of joining the "dough-boys," there
are three who may try to make the
grade. Don Siegel, Jack Brennan,
and'Louie Levine have indicated an
interest in capitalizing on their tal-
ents, and all three have been ap-
proached by at least one professional
team.
Approached By Giants
The New York Giants, who sent in-
quiries to Siegel, Brennan and Levine,
have also sent out a feeler to Danny
Smick, but the big nine-letter athlete
says he won't consider any offer, pre-

ferring to play baseball, at which
sport he has displayed great potenti-
alities.
All-American Ralph Heikkinen and
Norm Purucker intend to stay out of
the professional game, but admit
that the lure of the game, plus a very
attractive offer, may induce them to
change their minds. "Hike" is re-
ported tohhave received offers from
four teams already, and the compe-
tition for his services may raise the
offers to a point at which he will have
to think twice before refusing.
Purucker Is Undecit~ed
Purucker, the "Michigan Madcap,"
has his own plans, but he likes to
play so much that for a sufficient re-
turn he will get back into the game.
and take afling at the money-play-
ers.
Capt. Fred Janke, Wally Hook, and
Elmer Gedeon have hung up their,
togs for good to retire to the ob-
scurity of being just students. Janke
will continue his petroleum engineer-
ing work, while Gedeon, like Smick, I
may try his hand at pro baseball.'
Hook expects to go into business.
With five boys admittedly attract-
ed, it is extremely probable that the
1939 football season will find a couple
of Wolverines playing for their food
-and a little gravy, too.1

AUGUSTA, Ga., Dec. 3-()P)-Leo
Walper hung up a nifty 69 today to
go with yesterday's 67 to keep out

Augusta Open golf tournament.

SMICK NICHOLSON
Danny Smick and John Nicholson, veteran ends on Michigan's football,
team, have reported to Coach Bennie Oosterbaan's cage squad along
with four other gridders, Tom Harmon, Freddie Trosko, Milo Sukup and
Paul Nielsen. Smick, a two-letterman in basketball, is a probable regu-
lar, forward, while Nicholson, a reserve award winner last year, is at-
tempting to gain either a center or forward job. Nick tallied fourteen,
points for the reserves in yesterday's scrimmage.

Varsity Sextet
Meets Strong
Rival Tuesday
McMaster University Has
Veteran-Studded Squad
For Opener At Coliseum
When Coach Eddie Lowrey's Wol-
verine hockey team comes up against
the McMaster University squad on
Tuesday night at the Coliseum they
will come into direct contact with a
strong and very experienced hockey
organization.
In the goal will be Fred "Bones"
Martin, who although a good six feet
in height fails to tip the scales at
much over 135 pounds. Herheld down
the goal spot on last year's Maroon
team.
At the two starting defense posi-
tions will be Ken McAdam, who is
called McMaster's number one ath-
lete, and Herb Leal, who is the Cana-
dian Intermediate Intercollegiate
heavyweight boxing champion.
McAdam was one of the greatest
half backs in inter-collegiate foot-
ball and at present is on the reserve
list of the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Both of these defense men are well
over six feet and hover around the
two hundred pound mark on the
scales.
In the center face off spot will be
Ross Martin, brother of the goalie and
the fastest forward in the univers-
ity. Along with this six foot center
Bob Burt and Verdum Wendorf will
hold down the wings.
Wendorf is the smallest man on
the squad but is noted in, Western
Ontario for his backcheckingability
and also boasts having a very strong
shot. Burt has been playing on the
McMaster team for the past three
seasons. Before that he played for St.
George and was instrumental in
their winning two Ontario champion-
ships.
When this combination of men
needs support Coach Ossie Stewart,
who is having his first season with
the McMaster squad, can call upon
six players who although lacking
the experience of the first team will
be able to cause "Spike" James a lot
of trouble.
Last night the Wolverine team
went through their last hard practice
before Tuesday's curtain raiser. Mon-
day Coach Lowrey will spend' the
practice session in a light skating
and puck shooting drill.

Southern Methodist put the ball in
play on its own 20, shoved it down
